RICK AND THE GOOSE

Featuring Rick Veneer (r) on vocals, acoustic guitar, slide guitar, kick box and harmonica and Australia's best known blues/rock drummer, Barry ‘Little Goose‘ Harvey(l) on double bass, bass drum and hi hat, Rick and the Goose are attracting music fans curious to see how they manage to make so much sound for only two players. 


They are totally organic - there are no drum machines, computers or sequencers involved here. Having studied the double bass at Berklee Music College in the U.S., Goose finds it hard to leave the drums behind and uses both arms and legs in his role as one man rhythm section. 

Their blend of fine blues, soul, and jazz is augmented by some great originals, such as the popular Valley of The Blues which takes an affectionate and humorous look at Brisbane, Australia's famous Fortitude Valley. 
They have explored many musical roads together and have discovered a sound and feel that has been described as "Duke Ellington meets Muddy Waters" and even "Muddy meets Jimi". The spirit of John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters is there, along with Coltrane on the bass drum and Al Jackson on the hi hat! If that makes sense, you must already have the album!
